1. Charades

It’s an easy game that works smoothly on Zoom. Make 2 groups; use ‘charades idea generator’ to choose words and/or phrases; use Zoom spotlight when you act out a charade and let the team guess in 1 minute or less! A whole lot of fun when you’re playing with friends and family.

2. Bingo

Want something easy? Bingo is your best pick. My Free Bingo Cards can be used to play a traditional game with a virtual caller. You can also play a custom Bingo game that centers around a movie/television, one that a group member plans to watch.

3. Cards Against Humanity

Disclaimer: Adults only. PlayingCards.io made its free version, too (Remote Insensitivity). It’s playable on phones whilst video chatting on a PC. All you need is a personal game room, a link and you’re good to do.

4. Trivia

With this game, you can practice those trivia skills you probably felt are going to waste in this lockdown. To play this game on Zoom, simply start the Trivia generator and ask away! Multiple players can send their answers in Zoom chat.

5. Scattergories

A fun, simple game for all age groups, Scattergories works on simple principles: come up with a word in a minute using one letter-five categories (book names, stationary, names, etc) road map. You gain more points if the word you’ve come up with is really unique than others’.

6. Most Likely To…

Fan of binge drinking/chatting with strangers over a friendly drink? This is your game. You get to pose different ‘most likely to’ situations and decide pick the friend you think most likely would do that thing. The one who has to drink. There’s also a list of questions here to choose from.

7. Name, Place, Animal, Thing

Most of us have literally grown up with this game. Why not play it again after a tiring work Zoom meeting? You’re probably familiar with its drill: you pick a letter, name a famous person, place, animal, and thing that begins with that letter, and the player to type all responses in Zoom chat is the winner.

8. Pictionary

In this classic Pictionary game-night game, make teams, use a Pictionary word generator to decide who goes first, designate a drawer on that team, let him/her generate a word and their team has to guess that word. The team gains a point if they guess the word correctly.

9. Psych

An exciting game, Psych works by having you come up with fake answers to real trivia questions. One person has to pick the real answer from the fake ones and one to do so, wins.
